For decades the nation of Indonesia has operated the Spanish CASA C-235 high-winged transport at both the civilian and military levels. With a renewal of initiative in its aerospace sector, it was only natural then that the country moved to local production of the proven and globally-popular series - though with modifications to suit local requirements. This has spawned the "N-245" product by Indonesian Aerospace and the aircraft remains in development as of this writing.

Development of the N-245 began in 2016. Now firmly with government backing, a first-flight of a prototype is tentatively scheduled for 2019.

The N-245 is essentially an offshoot of the Spanish design, retaining all of the form and function of the original save for a lengthened fuselage, all-new T-style tail unit and a shift to Pratt & Whitney engines. It seats fifty passengers and sports a crew of two. Power is from two engines, these underslung at each wing mainplane. With the high-mounted wings, the N-245 is set to have excellent Short Take-Off and Landing (STOL) capabilities as well as good short-field/rough-field performance and "hot-and-high" abilities. The series is intended primarily for military service and will feature systems common to military transport types (though it will lack the rear-loading ramp of the C-235). Power is from 2 x Pratt & Whitney Canada turboprop engines, these readily available in the region and offered at a good price.
